Re: ladspa.h -- a plugin API.

In Tue, 6 Mar 2001 12:47:32 -0500 Brian cum veritate scripsit :

I am cc'ing Richard Furse, because he would probably be interested in this thread.

To summarize, the possible licenses are :

b) BSD style license without the advertizing clause
c) XFree86 license
d) something new which is GPL compatible (not recommended)

What would be the possible problem with making it LGPL ? 
For example, would a BSD-licensed program be able to #include <ladspa.h> 
and still stay BSD ?
